In other news, we have a majority in the IDS legislature. Cheesy
Do we? Who else aside from me and Pingvin?

And the IDS legislature has 3 members! Smiley

Not anymore... just passed bill to move up to 5. Yelnoc, Teddy, and Taft4Prez are also members

Well I knew of Yelnoc, but... hmmm... we can say we are major!

Hurray, Cathcon!

For registering purposes, are Whig or communitarian?

Bah. Whatever, I shall still be registering with this party, whatever its name is (within reason).

Should there be a wiki page put up? Being the egotist that I am, I update my atlas wiki in order to account for my more recent return to the Assembly and for today's party change. Should there be a page that "Communitarian Party of Atlasia" can link to?

Also, there's a party color discussion going on. Sky Blue is being fought for it looks like, forest and light green are taken, and there's a socialist party which'll probably get red or orange or something. Ideas?

As the chairman of said socialist party I suggested either maroon or some sort of dusty pink, but I'll keep you posted in case you guys want orange or gold (the traditional Christian Democratic colors in a lot of Europe).

ETA: You guys can use orange if you'd like. We're having a thread to decide between maroon and two different shades of pink.

A shameless agrarian collectivist with no respect for private property or individual rights.

His idea of freedom is - it is a bad thing and should be stopped at all costs.

Nathan-land.  As much fun as watching paint dry... literally.

I say wait for the two parties to formally dissolve, and allow more members to join. We need time to gather ideas, then we can vote on them at once and get it all straightened out. I think it's preferable to throwing them about and when we're about to close the convention someone says "OH I thought of this!".

For the Presidency, I think endorsing ZuWo is the obvious choice. He's a member, he's already a candidate, and he's got a running-mate that can appeal to people outside the party base.

The convention ends on the 7th, which gives us enough time. And of course, we'll be endorsing ZuWo.

The regional Senate elections will be held.

These are the incumbents:

Pacific - bgwah
Midwest - Marokai
Mideast - MOPolitico
South - NCYankee
Northeast - Napoleon (will not run for re-election)

Personally, I'd endorse Marokai in the MW (very far away from us ideologically speaking but an active and dedicated Atlasian - plus there's no rightist in the MW anyway), MOPolitico in the Mideast (member of the Liberal Party but a pragmatic centrist who can work with people on the right and the left), Yankee in the South (the obvious choice).

But maybe there's a fellow communitarian who wants to run for a Senate seat? Note that with TJ in Cleve we already have 1 Senator.

Simfan for Senate?.... heh. In any case, I'm not sure that we should endorse people without their implicit approval... but I think that's a decent list.

I agree with that. Of course, those who want an endorsement from the CPA should actually care to ask our party for one. I propose we only endorse those candidates who are

1. worthy of our support and
2. are interested in our endorsement

Maybe the CPA endorsement is toxic in certain Atlasian regions, so each candidate is free to ask for our endorsement or not.

Exactly what I was thinking. I hope we're not limited to the South and Mideast- we seem to heading down that path.

Oh, and welcome MQuinn!
